Footnotes

  • Of the two cars used during the filming of 'Goldfinger' starring Sean Connery as James Bond, 'BMT 216A', Chassis Number DP/216/1, Engine Number 400/P4, was the original Aston Martin DB5 'Effects Car' fitted with '007 Special Equipment' and principal car, used for close up, interior and Special Effects shots including the famous 'ejector seat' scenes. After filming the car embarked on a World Tour as the James Bond 'Goldfinger' car and as a promotional car for the upcoming 1965 release of the film 'Thunderball' at various shows and events around the world and continued touring after release of both films for years to come. The car to which these badges were fitted was later used in the filming of the 1981 film 'Cannonball Run' and driven by Roger Moore. These badges had been removed from the vehicle prior to the time it was stolen in 1997.
